Spending money may seem easy, but there is an art to spending obscene sums without anything to show for it, except for a good time. On this week's episode of The Filthy Rich Guide, we showcase how some of the world's richest people spend ridiculous amounts of money "Buying Fun." Enjoy drinking? Entrepreneur Charles Shaker managed to spend $500,000 on one bar tab in Monte Carlo. Bars not your thing, but you still like to party? Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal does. He spent $78 million dollars on his daughter's over the top Parisian wedding, including $1.5 million on wine alone. For these billionaires, "work hard, play hard" is more than a motto.

They say, "Home is where the heart is," but when you're a billionaire, home is wherever…and whatever you want it to be. This week, The Filthy Rich Guide takes you on a tour of the biggest, most luxurious homes on land and sea, as we explore "Billion Dollar Listings." Ever feel like you needed more bathrooms? Junk Bond King Ira Rennert owns a 66,000 square foot Hampton's home with 29 bedrooms and 39 bathrooms. Prefer something a little larger? Indian billionaire, Mukesh Ambani owns the world's largest home. It is 27 stories high, 400,000 square feet and is valued at $1 billion. Reportedly, it takes a staff of 600 just to maintain the home. These are the homes we all dream about, but only the .1% OF the .1 % could afford.

Making billions of dollars is no easy task. Even as children, many billionaires sacrificed the pleasures of youth in the pursuit of money. So, what happens when they reach their goal of having endless money? For billionaires that are young at heart, they pursue the dream of "Never Growing Up." On this week's episode of The Filthy Rich Guide, we explore how the super-rich try to recapture their youth. For some billionaires, it means living out childhood fantasies. Bill Koch loved the Wild West so much that he spent $3.1 million to buy his very own western style ghost town. For others, it's about searching for ways to live forever. Casino owner, Don Laughlin is paying to be cryogenically frozen, so that he can be brought back to life in the future. No matter how they choose to fulfill their youthful dreams, one thing is for certain, when you are filthy rich, growing older doesn't mean you have to grow up.

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison bought one for nearly half a billion dollars. Looking for something a little sexier than an island? Prince Jefri of Brunai let loose his inner exhibitionist when he spent $800,000 on life-sized statues of himself and his then fiancé in various sexual positions. When you've got billions, you can have anything you want and these billionaire bad boys break the bank to live it up
